Using Motor Controllers in a SIF
Recording Date: February 2018
In the process industry, many safety functions include a pump, fan, or other motor driven device. To bring a process to a safe state the devices that control these electric elements need to work correctly. While the failure modes and mechanisms in machinery applications have been in study for years, there is less data and experience to draw on for the process industry. This webinar will discuss barriers Engineers face when performing SIF design, how to fill the void when information is lacking, and review an example of a device attempting to achieve SIL.
